Waits, Tom - Rain Dogs
(Island ILPS-9803 Swe-85 VG+ 300:-)

Tom Waits is generally considered to be one of the most important modern composers working in any genre, having garnered a well-earned reputation for fanatically following his muses wherever they lead, always with a sense of joyous abandon and an innate trust in his ability to find ugly and beautiful truths wherever they may lie.

"Rain Dogs" is a loose concept album about the people who live on the streets of New York City, the so-called urban dispossessed. This album is generally considered the middle album of a trilogy that includes "Swordfishtrombones" and "Franks Wild Years".

(Sony 9439-70769 EU-20 EX 350:-)

Watt, Mike - Ball-Hog Or Tugboat?
(Columbia C2-66464 US-95 VG+ 400:-)

Michael David Watt is an American bassist, singer and songwriter - co-founder of the rock bands Minutemen, Dos, and fIREHOSE.

This is a mid-90s classic. Those who are making it nowadays in rock and pop cannot match that eras experimentalism, creativity, quirkiness, humor, freshness. Cynicism, rage, and sensuality have now poisoned the hearts of youth. This is when rock was still fun.

US pressing on BLUE vinyl.
Who - Sell Out
(Track 613.002 UK-67 VG+ 1000:-)

An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s!

The Who recorded this one as a tribute to mainstream radio at the time – linking together some solid stand alone tunes with shorter, wittier tracks that were recorded as commercials for products that included baked beans, acne cream, and deodorant – as well as cool announcer bits too! The end result is one of the most sonically complex records issued by a mainstream rock act of the time – sort of like The Who said "yeah, everyone's trying to copy Sgt Peppers with big arrangements, but we'll take this concept album thing in a whole new direction!". Brilliant all the way through!

No poster, though...
Villagers - Live at the Workman's Club
(Domino WIGLP273 UK-11 EX 275:-)

Villagers are an Irish indie folk band from Dublin, formed in 2008, after singer Conor O'Brien's break-up of his previous band The Immediate.

Villagers’ night at the Workman’s Club was as much celebration as a gig. Throughout the hour long performance, Conor’s voice ranges from the intimate tones of a friend confiding in you on tracks like ‘27 Strangers’ and ‘The Pact’ to the soaring, almost rapture-like intensity on ‘Pieces’ and ‘Home’.

Exclusive Record Store Day 2011 release.
Wilson, Deirdre - Dierdre Wilson Tabac
(RCA Victor LSP-4283 US-70 VG+ 400:-)

A beautiful bit of funky rocking soul – and the one and only album by the Deirdre Wilson Tabac – a group whose name is as strange as their grooves are funky! The group are best known for their well-compiled track "I Can't Keep From Cryin Sometimes" – an uptempo jazzy gem that mixes skipping Hammond with soaring vocals and some really great horns – and the rest of this set has a very similar feel – one that blends jazz rock with more soulful vocals, in a groove that's totally unique! Sonny Casella wrote, arranged, and produced the record – and he's also the drummer in the group, so there's keen attention to rhythms on all tracks.

Original US pressing.
